The resulting structure, a seemingly impossibly thin translucent shell, will attract passers-by “like moths” during the evening hours, as the amber-tinted light glows from within. From inside, “the natural setting will appear lower, giving the sensation that the entire volume is floating,” according to Radic.

Speaking at the opening press conference, Radic spoke about the success of his design: “When I came two days ago, I saw the interior space and I saw the exterior, I felt that I was inside my model… to change that scale of some materials is really difficult. If you look at this pavilion from the outside, you feel that it’s a handmade volume.”
